    I am once again let down. Reached out to their office a few weeks ago, made an appt. Dr. NO showed or called after 30 minutes of waiting. Pissed, but rescheduled for the following Monday for first appt. at 9:30...just got a call that Dr. Wigod isn't feeling well and that he'll have to cancel. WHAT!?!?!?! Again!!!! I'm losing hair by the handfuls and and suffering from what might be Thyroid Cancer and he can't even show up to an appt?!?! Then you SHOULDN'T be practicing ANYMORE!

    Dr. Wigod is a gem of a physician and man. He took the time to diagnose me when several other physicians couldn't. His staff, Myrna and Joyce are friendly and efficient. Happy to highly recommend.
